ERE Facilities, Equipment & Data Resources

New facilities in the Department of Environmental Resources Engineering home in Baker Laboratory include:

  • electronic classrooms equipped with computers and visual aids,
  • dedicated research and instruction laboratories for ecological engineering, geospatial engineering, and water resources engineering research,
  • design classrooms with flexible space and drafting capabilities, and
  • new faculty, staff, and graduate student offices. 

ERE facilities are supported by campus staff, wood and machine shops, and ESF's Analytical and Technical Services unit. Research and analysis is facilitated by a powerful range of computing platforms and software. Off-campus facilities include the extensive ESF properties, and numerous field sites supported by an array of field equipment for environmental resource engineering measurements.

  • Laboratory

    Professor Ted Endreny adjusts instream structures for a simulation in the new James Hassett M. Laboratory for the Study of Hydrology and Hydraulics

  • biofilters

    Professor Wendong Tao constructs biofilters to culture anaerobic ammonium oxidation (annomox) bacteria in the new Ecological Engineering Laboratory

  • working at a Computer

    Junior Geoff Bishop starts working at a Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) station in the new engineering design laboratory

  • Intelligent Geocomputing Laboratory

    The new Intelligent Geocomputing Laboratory will support and promote faculty and advanced research in Geographic Information Science and Engineering

  • construction of a water fountain

    Flexible classroom space allows a hands-on approach to engineering design and fabrication. Here freshmen students in FEG133: Introduction to Engineering Design, begin construction of a water fountain for their final design project

  • construct wetlands

    Students in Ecological Engineering I and II construct wetlands to treat high ammonium effluent in ESF greenhouse space

These new facilities are being used to enrich the educational experiences of our students and promote our developing expertise in research, teaching, and service.  It’s worth the trip to come visit our new home!
